However, it seems that this old rivalry has re-surfaced over social media! Holloway took shots at McGregor over the bottle cap challenge that has been trending these days. This has prompted a spat of words on Twitter and we might just get to see a fight between the two.

Holloway, however, believes that his video is much better. He pointed out that his cap kept spinning and spinning while McGregor’s flew right off.
He taunted the Irishman by saying that “some people win championship belts, some people defend them.” This is a shade on how McGregor was a two-title holder in the UFC and didn’t defend them while Holloway was a fighting champion.
